I thought a lot about BTW era music videos, and I noticed something. Every BTW music video represents one kind of element - BTW - Space/Darkness/Emptiness; Judas - Water; TEOG - Air; Yoü and I - Earth, MTN - Fire. Talking about magic. Also I believe that every video is continuation of the one before (probably The Fame fragrance film). What do you think of that? PS: A-MAZING BLOG! KEEP IT UP!
Hi David, great observation! When I saw this message from you I reblogged a post I had drafted, which fits with exactly what you noticed, showing the elements from those videos. I wonder if Gaga did that consciously, or if that just happened like that. She’s so smart I wouldn’t be surprised.
I have thought about how a lot of her videos seem to connect. Her videos seem to take place in either present day, or somewhere totally supernatural (Born This Way, Bad Romance, for example), but I have this theory that her videos can all be connected. For instance, when you watch Paparazzi, right after you hear the voice over of Gaga calling 911, the day fades to night in one quick transition, before the police come for Gaga. For a while I’ve thought that the video for Beautiful, Dirty, Rich could exist in that transition. Like, Gaga called 911, and in the time it took the police to arrive she and her remaining friends at the mansion celebrated the death of her boyfriend, partying, drinking and doing drugs, knowing Gaga was about to be taken away. Just an observation… not something I would claim Gaga actually constructed to be that way. But you never know lol.
